Looking at Energy Use in US Residential…

I recently came across the National Renewable Energy Laboratories Building Typology web dashboard (and associated paper), a very neat interface for exploring a huge simulation of US residential energy use built by NREL (a similar one for commercial buildings is coming later this year.) Using this, we can get a super granular (if simulated) look at exactly where energy goes in US homes, and see which parameters affect it. So let’s take a look and see what we find.
